Research Project: Efficacy of Mineral Rover for High Fidelity/Temporal Resolution of Field FHB Severity

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-058-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 15, 2021
End Date: May 14, 2023

The objectives of this research are to: 1) use a rover to phenotype FHB severity on wheat and barley, 2) develop models to quantify FHB from imaged plots, 3) determine the efficiency of the rover for measuring FHB severity in field experiments vs conventional rating methods, and 4) model FHB-severity and DON levels using image-based FHB detection.

The researcher will use a rover for high-throughput phenotyping and compare it to traditional phenotyping to determine efficiency and accuracy.
